So, I was noodling around here & I see this topic. I couldn't resist.
That's my family....
Awwwww Hank they are all beautiful - the ideal kind of family. :-D Your labrador looks good with the Christmas decoration on his/her collar. Can you tell us a little about them all please?
Ahh yes, names. From top to bottom:
Desi (lab mix),
Freddie (cocker spaniel),
Rocky (barn cat).
Desi's bell began as a decoration, but we liked it so much she still wears it. It sure helps when we're on a trail in the woods.
Thanks for the names of you little family Hank. So much better than referring to them as the dog, cat or whatever. :-D Looking forward to getting to know them better.
Lovely pets Hank! I love the second photo, Hank (named him after you or vice versa for your username?) looks very relaxed. Quite the poser
Does Desi like his little addition? Was he annoyed with it initially?
Thanks for posting
Oh! So much explaining and such poor typing skills I have.
Ok, Hank was called Rain when we bought him. We thought that was rather dumb, and after a while we saw that he had a personality that was a mirror of mine. Plus add that his grand sire is Hank-A-Chief, one of the most famous paint studs from the midwest. The decision was easy.
Next, Desi is a she, short for Desperado. She was a suprise that my wife brought home after vacationing up north with the horses. The short story is that a hunter from the "Desperado Ranch" found her in the woods starving and full of porcupine quills. It's a wonder he didn't put her down right then. Thankfully he took her in, they nursed her back to health, then my wife adopted her. Desperado is a mouthfull when hollering at a dog, so we shortened it. Oh, and she doesn't mind her bell one bit.
What a nice family u have. The names and story was also thanks G!zMo
Thanks ,Hank your family is a nice furry family /i love the stoy behind them .Most everyone here love animals as you will soon find out.
really inspiring! thought of expanding my family a bit more...nevertheless, we stick to just cats and dogs who peacefully live with each other...the kittens could suck milk from the dogs and they don't mind it!..
AWWWWWWWWW!!!!!!!!! I love them all. I would love to have horses, but to expensive for my pocketbook.
Very nice pictures Hank.Freddie is adorable!!!And Rocky is so HUGE. Makes me wanna hold him I bet he is heavy.
Thank you all. Freddie is adorable and he knows it. Took him camping this last weekend and he had a blast. Poor fella is getting old (11) and he's slowing down a bit, hearing is going, and his eyes are getting cloudy, but he's still a ham.
Yep, Rocky's a huge monster, but a big lover. I taught him to sit on my shoulders when he was a baby, and he still wants to do it now with all of his 19 lbs.
Cajunbelle - horses aren't too expensive, but all of the stuff you have to get in addition to them is (saddles, trailers, big truck, feed, show clothes....the list goes on....)
Poor Freddy, why do they have to grow old so fast Still looks like he has a lot of energy left though
I like the gift wrapped dog
She was unwrapping her presents. I dunno what she likes better, the presents or the gift wrap...
